None of the optional packages are installed by default anymore (including printer drivers).
If you want a optional package such as a printer driver or Java, you will get a prompt asking you to download it from Apples servers the first time you try to use it.
Other things that used to be on the install DVD such as Xcode now come from the app store if you want them.
Edit: I'm not sure about Languages though, they might still get installed.

It does install all the laguages, JavaTools, JavaEssentials, X11, and a bunch of other things one may want left off to begin with. It's actualy alittle iritating. This is according to the install log.

I also wondered ,but if you change interface localisation on Language Preferences it will install in that language so
you have to get Clean my mac and it can clean out unwanted languages later ,otherwise it seems a useless adition.

After install it you can reboot in recovery mode and use disk utility etc ..
You are wrong on that. customize is before installation. and it is not mentioned in the install Manual.
Getting in Recovery is also difficult too.
And the Installer will delete the Lion installer after installing once you have to copy it on an external disk.
